Quote from Red7What i meant was that say chandra nalaar has 5 loyalty counters when i draw chandra ablaze. i can have her use the -X ability to do 5 damage to a creature, killing chandra by leaving her with no more loyalty counters. thus leaving the board empty for ablaze to come out.
Well, i have card altering with magma jet and lash out. putting in rite of flame/seething songs to accelerate an ablaze out seems like it would waste space in the deck to me.
Yes but still, there are various situations where you would rather keep the Nalaar etc.
Seething Song and Rite of Flame are never a waste of space. Acceleration is something Red lacks, and falls behind for. Those 2 cards can do great things for the deck, whether it be casting a Chandra on turn 3, or casting multiple spells on turn 6.
